Celebrate Your True Self with the Perfect Hair Color – Discover Which One Is Best for You?

Take in the allure of different types of hair color to determine which one harmonizes with your hair needs and routine – from wash-out to long-term enchantment.

The dazzling world of hair color is filled with chic technical terms and various types of dye. It can seem overwhelming to work out what’s available and right for you. In this article, we will look at temporary, semi-permanent, and permanent hair color in more detail to help you make an empowered decision.

Temporary Hair Dye – The Elegant Touch of Hair Makeup

Temporary color often gets mistaken with semi-permanent hair dye. Acting like a glamorous makeup for your hair, temporary hair color coats the outside of the hair shaft. Its charm lasts for a short while, usually rinsing out after one shampoo wash. This bewitching product comes in many forms, from sprays to tubes and hair toner. Some root concealers also use temporary hair dye to cover grey roots elegantly.

Reasons to embrace temporary hair dye

  • Ideal for special occasions or trying out new colors.
  • Gentle leave-in formula with no bleach or hair damage.
  • Grey root coverage to space out colorings.

Considerations before choosing temporary hair dye

  • Color only lasts one wash

Semi-Permanent Hair Dye – Natural Results That Gradually Fade with Grace

Lasting longer than its temporary counterpart, semi-permanent hair color usually stays vibrant for 6 to 8 weeks, depending on how often you wash your hair. They offer more color options than temporary wash-out dyes as they penetrate the outermost layers of the hair shaft, from natural shades with simmering tones to bright pink. You also get gloss and shine. Semi-permanent hair dyes don’t contain bleach, which is good for your hair, but means you can’t go lighter than your natural color.

Reasons to choose semi-permanent hair dye

  • More natural color than wash-out dyes
  • Last longer than temporary dye without fully committing to a color
  • No bleach or harsh chemicals like ammonia

Considerations before choosing semi-permanent hair dye

  • Color fades after 6-8 weeks – regular re-application can dry out your hair
  • Won’t fully cover all grey
  • Can’t go lighter than your natural color

Permanent Hair Dye – Vibrant, Lasting Color in Any Shade

Permanent hair dyes are expertly formulated to give long-lasting hair color. When mixed with a developer, the dye opens the cuticles on the surface of the hair shaft to deliver the dye deep inside. They don’t wash out over time. But you’ll need to re-color your roots or give your hair a touch up as the color fades or grows out. Some hair dyes contain anti-brassiness purple technology to help maintain the color over time. Others contain a protective cool coloring cream enriched with pro-keratin to protect the hair as it colors.

Reasons to choose permanent hair dye

  • Long-lasting color
  • A multitude of shades regardless of your hair color
  • Full grey coverage

Considerations before choosing permanent hair dye

  • Stronger chemical including an oxidizer and sometimes ammonia
  • Regular upkeep to cover roots and boost color
